5:00 am
srebrenicasrebrenica. it is now in the u.s. -- health authorities on both sides of the atlantic are racing to find the source of a deadly e. coli outbreak, the rare strain has already killed 17 in europe. 11:00 a.m. in hamburg. 10:00 a.m. in london, you're watching world one. also ahead, the butcher of the balkans as he's known appears at the hague to hear charges against him. ratko mladic delays entering a plea. she's a libyan woman who grabbed international attention, accusing muammar gadhafi's forces of rain raping her. why she's in the headlines again. and the battle for yemen intensifies. government troops try to put down a rebellion that refuses to
5:01 am
go away. hello. a rare and deadly strain of the e. coli bacteria is no longer confined to europe. the bacteria has already killed 17 people. authorities in the u.s. say three people have now fallen ill from e. coli. all of them had recently been to germany, the center of the current outbreak. experts say there's no reason for americans to panic as the bacteria hasn't been found in food there and the disease is rarely passed from person-to-person. the world health organization says it all stems from the strain of the e. coli bacteria that's never been seen before in an outbreak. the u.s. is the 11th country to report cases of e. coli. more than 1600 people have now fallen sick. scientists in germany at first said incorrectly that the bacteria had been traced to cucumbers imported from spain. what resulted was a backlash
5:02 am
against spanish produce and the industry that would stand to lose $300 million per week. while the spanish say the produce is safe to eat, they would have to fight to clear their name. they're arguing that vegetable growers who lost business would get more compensation. for more we go to al goodman in southern spain. >> i'm on a farm, a cucumber farm here in aluma ria, just south of aluma ria where the father, manuel sanchez moreno has been in the business for 40 years. in the past week, he had to lose about 50,000 euros. i'm walking through row upon row of cucumbers, most of them have been destroy ed, rotting. they can't give them away because this is happening across southern spain. they would try to give away vegetables like this to charities or to animals -- since all of the farmers are in the same position, this many cucumbers cannot be absorbed.
5:03 am
and we were at the cooperative, he's a member of the cooperative, a growing cooperative, nine other growers, lost 350,000 euros, 1% of their annual sales in five days. >> to compensate them at this point? >> i'm sorry, i didn't hear that? >> who is the spanish government saying needs to compensate the spanish farmers for their loss. >> the farmers are saying the european union or germany directly. it's the officials at hamburg germany who implemented the spanish cucumber. unfairly rushed to judgment last week. that's all turned around. and the cucumber here is taken off of the watchlist. the government says talks need to happen with the european commission and perhaps with germany, taking a softer stance with germany because there's an eu partner and so many issues beyond the cucumber. this is happening at the worst possible time, 21% of the
5:04 am
employment. these are immigrants from south america working three hours. they're taking a hit. at every level from the owner, cooperative, to the worker. everybody is taking a hit in this region. moni monita. >> al goodwin in southern spain, thank you so much. in libya, a surprising twist in a story we've been following for several weeks. the story of a woman who says she was gang raped by colonel gadhafi's security forces. you may remember her as the woman who burst into a lobby in will hotel of tripoli accusing security forces of assaulting her. that was back in march. she fled from libya. until yesterday, she was living as a refugee in qatar, waiting to be resettled. but now, she's been deported by the qatari government back to libya. she's told cnn she was beaten and handcuffed in qatar and forced on to a military plane that took her to the rebel-held city of benghazi. someone who has since seen her
5:05 am
says she has a black eye and bruises. why she's taken back to libya remains a mystery. cn next has tried to get an explanation from qatari authorities but have not answered the questions. libya had been seeking her deportation. they're saying they had nothing to do with it. al-obeidy's forced return to libya, the country where she alleges she was raped was cruel. we wan to get more from the rebel-held city of misrata. let's talk about the fact that she's saying it's the rebels, the national transitional council, those are the ones that have been asking for her to be returned to libya. what are they saying? >> we have not heard anything from the opposition forum national transitional council on this issue. they have not made any statement after al-obeidy did pressure the
5:06 am
government to return her to libya. we hear now she is in benghazi, which is it the raebl strong hold where the national transitional counsel is doing its work. we're trying to get in touch with them and trying to find out exactly what they say about the situation. but again as you mention, the qatari government hasn't said anything either. we do know she's saying that she and her parents were forced from a hotel room in qatar back to this country. she did not want to come back to this country. the u.n. refugee agency was also making many moves to try and keep her from being deported but failed. at this point in time, all we know is she's in benghazi in the rebel strong hold? >> do we know that she's in potential danger in benghazi? >> well, here's the thing. we spent four weeks in ben dpa si. we've just arrived the last couple of days here in misrata. it's been quiet there. there's the rebel strong hold.
5:07 am
a lot of people support the rebels. there's the fear of what's known as the fifth column. basically a group of people who are quietly supporting the gadhafi regime. over the last couple of days there have been a couple of car blasts, a hotel that houses under the u.n. agencies and the eu office. and there was another blast in the city square where many people gather daily to just talk about the revolution and share stories. and, so, there have been some things happening that have people worried. and certainly the al-obeidy family has been concerned. we spent time with the parents. they're concerned for their daughter and her safety. even though she's in the rebel strong hold, it does not make it so that she would be safe. there are a lot of concerns certainly on the family's part and certainly on her part. but i would suspect that the national transitional council will keep a close watch on her to make sure nothing happens to her. in this environment, you never know. monita? >> thank you for that.

[ crickets chirping ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] advanced gas turbine technology from ge. ♪ hello. this is world one live from london. top story this is hour. it's killed 17 people and sickened over 1600. now a deadly strain of e. coli is spreading beyond europe's borders. the authorities in the u.s. say three people there have fallen ill, all of them had recently been to germany, the center of the current outbreak. the world health organization says the strain of e. coli has never been seen in an outbreak
5:12 am
before. appearing battered and bruised, a libyan woman who claims she was rained by colonel gadhafi's security forces has been deported back to qatar. she had been staying in qatar. she was forced to the plane after being handcuffed and beaten. she was taken to benghazi. a human rights group says her deportation is a violation of international law. ratko mladic has told the u.n. war crimes tribunal the charges against him are obnoxious. mladic is making the first appearance before the tribunal on charges of genocide, murder, and other atrocities committed in 1992 and 1995. after the charges were read out to him in court, mladic said, quote, i have not heard these monstrous words before. the 69-year-old's lawyer argued mladic wasn't well enough to stand trial. the authorities disagreed saying he was lively and joking before
5:13 am
he was transferred to the netherlands. among other things, mladic is accused of organizing the srebrenica massacre and siege of sarajevo. >> you, ratko mladic, are charged with genocide, crimes against humanity, and violations of the laws and the customs of war under several modes of liability including joint criminal enterprise. >> let's bring in atika who's following the process for us. describe for us the process at this point and what we've been seeing at the hague. >> what has happened is mladic had the charges read out to him. he's supposed to enter a plea. but mladic said earlier that the charges were obnoxious, monstrous words, and said he would need more than a month to respond. he's trying to delay the plea process. however, the judge said he has scheduled another hearing for july 4.
5:14 am
so the process is going forward but mladic seems to be delaying it as much as he can. >> how did he appear? >> one of the big issues is is he really so frail he cannot stand trial? the lawyers argueled he was gravely ill. he seemed fine. he seemed to understand everything said to him. and the authorities were joking in his transfer. so he seems fine. we'll have to see what the defense says going forward. >> all right, let's go down to mark ellis of the international bar association who joins us in the studio. mark has been working as an advisor to various bodies to crimes commit in the balkans. thank you very being with us. we understand that mr. mladic has delayed entering a plea. what does it mean in terms of legal terms and what happens in that process. >> under the ictys, under the court statute, he'll have 30 days to inform the court whether he'll plead guilty or not guilty to each of the 11 counts. if he does not provide position to the court, the court would
5:15 am
automatically indicate that he is pleading not guilty so he'll have the 30 days to make the determination. but at the end, the court will in essence say he will be pleading not guilty. he'll do what we wants. but the court proceedings will continue as scheduled. >> the interesting, i guess, legal and defense position is there's a discussion now between the responsibility -- command responsibility versus direct responsibility. give us an idea of what that means. >> a very good point. you heard mladic suggest earlier that he didn't know the crimes were being committed. and so indicting him under this concept of command responsibility is very important. command responsibility essentially says if you, as an individual are in a position of authority and your subordinates commit these crimes and that you knew or should have known
5:16 am
emphasize should have known that the crimes were committed and you didn't stop them, you could have been held liable for the acts. it narrowly lowers the argument by mladic to suggest that he didn't know the things were happening. command responsibility said, yes, you should have known and we're going to hold you responsible for the crimes. >> does that make it easier, then, for the prosecution to prove that case? >> it certainly -- the prosecution still has to set out its case. there's parameters they have to follow legally. but in some ways it's a catch-all. it's a criminal principle that avoids allowing a defendant to say, well, it's blind ignorance that i didn't know. my soldiers were doing these things and i didn't know.
5:17 am
this principle says, yes, but you should have known. you're in a position, in this case, the general, conducting the military activities and you should have known that your soldiers were committing these crimes and if you did nothing to stop them, did nothing to bring them to -- to bear responsibility, then you personally will be held responsible. so, yes, it's -- it is a potent, i think, process for the -- for the prosecutor to use. and that's going to be very important. >> is there a possibility. and if it does indeed happen, what happens if mr. mladic refuses to enter a plea in 30 days? >> again, if he refuses to enter the plea, then the court will enter a plea for him, and then it will be not guilty. and the next step is will he represent himself. will he accept defense attorneys? will he accept those and that will be another major issue for this court because if mladic decides to within the next 30 days to say that he's going to
5:18 am
represent himself that places the court in a challenging situation as we have seen in the past with high profile defendants. so this is going to be an interesting period of time to determine exactly what mladic is going to do as to this case -- as to this case. >> thank you so much. mark ellis there in london. now that mladic is behind bars, serbia is one step closer to joining the european union. but it still has a long way to go. in the fall, the europeep commission that will decide whether to open formal eu talks with serbia, but another war crimes suspect, a former serb leader in croatia remains at large. if that hurdle is overcome, serbia will then have to negotiate 35 separate chapters of legislation. they will cover everything from taxes to intellectual property rights and environmental standards, this could take several years.

hello. this is "world one" live from london. i'm monita rajpal. our top stories, ratko mladic, the former commander of the bosnian serb army told the tribunal the charges against him are obnoxious. mladic is making his first appearance before the tribunal on charges of genocide, murder, and other atrocities in 1992 and 1995. after the charges were read out to him in court, mladic said i have not heard these monstrous words before. a deadly strain of e. coli is spreading beyond europe. three cases have been report in the united states.
5:28 am
all three people went with the infection have been to germany, the center of the current outbreak. 17 people have died. infectious disease experts around the world are rushing to find the source of the outbreak, while medical experts say this strain is virulent and feared. security stole information from the sony pictures website. the group claims it wants to expose what it called the insecurity of sony's data. that comes after the company was forced to close the gaming networks for weeks following two hacker attacks. appearing battered and bruised, a libyan woman who claims she was raped by colonel gadhafi's security forces have been deported back to libya from qatar where she was staying as a refugee. she was forced on to the plane after being handcuffed and beaten. she was taken to the rebel held
5:29 am
city of benghazi. the deportation is a violation of international law. the united nations refugee agency said it tried to stop qatar from deporting al-obeidy but the attempts were ignored. thank you for being with us. we understand that the representative from the unhc was at the hotel and correct me if i'm wrong, he was at the hotel but denied entry, any access to her. what have you heard now? have you spoke on the the qatari government at all? >> we have been in touch but the key point is they didn't listen to us. we asked for them to allow us to take ms. obeidy to romania. we fixed up a flight for her to go on. but she was forced to go on a plane back to libya. >> what reasons did the qatari government give you? >> i don't have the reasons and i i don't believe there are any
5:30 am
justifiable reasons for returning somebody that is recognized as a refugee. >> what happens to her now in terms of what kind of i guess routes will you be taking, to try to secure her security and safety if that's available now that she's in benghazi. >> i heard with colleagues that they are en route to meet with ms. obeidy. our main priority will be to ensure that her wishes are respected at this point. we'll be meeting with her and what she and her family want to do next. >> are discussions continuing with the government to give some sort of i guess a real dialogue to find -- to get to the bottom of this? >> well, right now, the priority is obviously for ms. al-obeidy's safety. so our priority is to ensure that she's safe in benghazi and
5:31 am
her wishes are respected as to what she wants to do next. >> who will they be dealing with within libya. are you dealing with the national transitional council? >> yeah, the national transitional counsel and anyone else concerned with her case. >> and is the next step trying to get her out of libya? >> it all depends on what she wants to do next. >> i guess the difficulties -- describe the difficulties in living with libya at this point? >> well, it's obviously a challenging environment to be working in. my colleague is on his way too be meeting with million. al-obeidy has come off of a boat herself from misrata. so we have our challenges of working there. but this is a top priority for us. >> we understand, obviously, ms. al-obeity's case has been disturbing and it continues to be disturbing.
5:32 am
hers would be one of many within libya. give us the idea the case numbers that you're working on. >> no one has been able to quantify the number of women, of children, that have suffered rape, that have suffered violence in this conflict. but it's obviously very high. i was just on the phone this morning to my colleague who was yesterday in misrata, and she was telling me that there are thousands of people who are displaced, that there are some families in misrata that now have seven or eight families living with them. and many of the families have missing family members. and, indeed, are claiming that some of their family members have been kidnapped. >> and before i let you go, in terms of ms. al-obeidy's case, forgive me if you have answered this question. are you in contact with her or people around her? and is she safe? >> well, we do understand that
5:33 am
she's safe. i'll be able to tell you more later after our staff have met with her. >> from geneva. thank you very much. street battles have continued overnight in the yemeni capital and on to friday morning. troops loyal to the president are trying to crush an uprising by anti-government forces. witnesses say tanks and troops are moving towards the home of the man said to be leading the uprising. the people have described hearing bombs and gun fire as we're hearing there as well. they say the situation in the city is very tense. get more on the story, go to cnn's mohammed john ju. he's following developments from abbuddha by. this is a tense and sensitive time. >> that's right, monita. prayers are going on right now in yemen.
5:34 am
so things are quiet for the moment. but we do know from anti-government demonstrators that we've spoken with in the capital and other parts of the country that protests are planned today. now, whether there will be marches in cities, that's yet to be -- that's yet to be decided because the concern from the anti-government demonstrators that keep coming out to the streets of the various cities, the concern is that the more they try to march through the streets of the various cities, the more possibility there is they'll be faced by violence, they'll be fired upon by troops out there or maybe get to clashes with tribesmen who are out there who are battling with government forces currently. a real palpable sense of fear that i'm hearing from residents of the capital. people are saying that if this is going on in the capital, how bad can it get in the rest of the country? right now, you have a convergence of different military units in the capital battling it out with thousands of armed tribemen loyal to the hasha tribe, it's one of the
5:35 am
most valuable tribes in yemen. that's one tribe that's going on in the capital. you have a flash point in the capital where you have demonstrators continuing to gather there. as of late last night, they say at one point armed young men had fired upon them from different areas of chain square. and at some point government forces may try to take over those camps. try to tear the tents down. they're worried about the possibility of violence. beyond that, you have the residents that are there afraid to come out of their houses because there is so much violence going on in the capital. so a chaotic scene to the capital and other parts of the country and we'll be watching throughout the day to see what happens. >> thank you. reporting to us from abbuddha by. take you to the hague and back to the courtroom where ratko mladic is making his first appearance. let's take a listen. >> translator: indignity, except that -- except for the procedure
5:36 am
and i have to say that that bothers me -- it really irritates me. when i see the -- worn by the people, i don't like that. i'd rather be killed by a police officer in the united states or anywhere. if they can kill me, ratko mladic so it can be report in the newspaper, fine. i defended my country. i didn't kill croats as croats and i'm not killing anyone in libya or africa. i was just defending my country. >> mr. mladic, please. we shouldn't mix up your defense, what you are charged, what you may have done in the past and the way in which you
5:37 am
are treated at this very moment. and that's what i asked you about. if you have any complaints about your treatment in detention, please consult with counsel and counsel, of course, you would refer mr. mladic to the regulations for the establishment of a complaints procedure for detainees. i think mr. mladic has already received a copy of the documentation in relation to that. mr. mladic, any other matter you would like to raise in the context that is not your defense and what happened in the past, but the present situation for detention. any other matter to be raise in that respect?
5:38 am
>> translator: if you want the proceedings to proceed as they should -- and i don't know how long that's going to be going on for, it's only known by the man up there -- i just have to say that i want to live to see that i am a free man. such as i am, i am defending my country and my people and not ratko mladic. and as for procedure, i would appreciate it if you allowed me to tell you what it is that irritates me. i don't want to be held and helped to move or to walk as if i was a blind man. i can walk on my own. and if i cannot, then i will ask
5:39 am
to be helped. i don't want to be helped funless i asked for it because i'm general mladic and the whole world knows who i am. >> mr. mladic, that request is now on the record. >> you've been listening to the proceedings taking place in the international tribunal at the former yugoslavia at the hague where ratko mladic has made the first appearance in the courtroom saying i defended my country. i'm ratko mladic. i did not kill croats as croats, i was just defending my country. he goes on to say i want to live to see that i'm a free man, i'm defending my country and my people and not defending ratko mladic. he described the charges against him as obnoxious and said the words were monstrous. yet, he has delayed entering a plea. we will continue to keep our eye on that courtroom. we're taking a short break here on "world one." ♪

he was an iconic figure whose death shocked the sporting world 17 years after the fatal crash at the san marina grand prix. his legend lives on. and a new movie has f-one fans on the edge of their seats. he was one of the greatest racing drivers of all time. the young man from brazil whose name was synonymous with speed, daring, and courage. >> i think we're watching the arrival of -- >> his rise, fall, and death have been memorialize in a feature documentary which premiered in london this week. >> this film is going to reveal him as one of the most outstanding and charismatic
5:44 am
drivers of all time. against a background of the fact that he was virtually a god in japan and in brazil. and there's never been anybody like that before. and you can't say there'll be anybody like it again. it certainly seems pretty unlikely. >> okay. >> let me finish. >> the show that he was occasionally slightly overzealo overzealous. and it's about the passion that he had, really, i don't think that was his -- that was the kind of person he was. he had a passion that drove him on and drove him to give everything he had, literally give everything he had to racing. >> he made the formula one debut in 1984 and throughout the next decade, he became the biggest star, winning three world championships. >> for me, it was just going,
5:45 am
going. and realized i was well beyond my cautious understanding. >> to do so, he had to overcome his mclaren teammate and rival and the politics of a sport that he perceived to be against him. it's a true story, but it bears the foremarks of a hollywood masterpiece. >> the kids. >> they're committing to win. if you no longer go for it, you're no longer a racing driver. >> the movie took years to complete and was a labor of love for the writer and executive producer, a self-confessed cena fanatic who spent years tolling through thousands of hours of archive and unseen footage. >> real racing. >> really be careful about making film or doing projects about your heroes because you really won't like what you hear and what you find. and when you dig deep, that will

difficult for me to see that movie. >> as an exposition of what cena was all about, it's uncanny. they captured the essence of the man. the thing brought back to me above all else because i comment tate all of these races was the quite incredible eloquence of the man. >> somewhere he would have watched this film too. do you think he would have liked it? >> i think he would have wished it went on very long. >> 17 years since he was so violently and tragically killed. his adoring fans then knew him as a living legend. now a new generation will get to see why. cnn, london. you're watching world one live from london. scientists are baffled as the e.

coli outbreak spreads beyond europe. we get answers from an expert in hamburg just ahead.

5:50 am
welcome back. this is "world one" live from london. we're coming up on 6:00 a.m. in new york, noon in berlin. 7:00 p.m. in tokyo. a real and deadly strain of the e. coli bacteria that's killed 17 people in europe has now
5:51 am
spread even further. three cases have been report in the united states. all of the people with the infection had recently been to germany, the center of the current outbreak. for more on that, we want to talk to the chairman and medical director of the hamburg center in germany. thank you very much for being with us. there are some -- some microbiologists are saying this particular strain is -- the e. coli is rarely spread from person to person. this could indeed spread from person to person. >> we know a lot about e. coli because they were dealing with the strains that were out for a long time. this particular strain is special. we've been able to decode the genetic formation a couple of hours ago. we're learning a lot more about this particular bacteria and what is apparent by looking at the patients is that it can, in fact, be virulent and cause very severe symptoms, particularly in the kidneys and the brain.
5:52 am
>> when you've said you've been able to detect -- i guess, uncover the genetic coat of this -- of this bacteria. does this mean that you have an idea of where it came from? the source of this outbreak? >> unfortunately, we don't. the source is still a mystery to everybody that's the german equivalent of the centers for disease control are obviously very busy trying to track down all kinds of leads. at this point, we still have to assume it has something to do with vegetables. that's why we continue to refrain from the consumption of raw vegetables, particularly cucumbers, tomatoes, and salads. >> no idea which country the vegetables may have originated from. so what should people do at this point when they go shopping? we're told you should eat vegetables as part of the healthy diet. what should we do now? >> the incenter of this endemic breakout of this e. coli strain is really northern germany.
5:53 am
four people who are living in northern germany or the advice of the institute will be our advice to refrain from eating raw vegetables. no cucumbers, no tomatoes, no salads. we can sum it up, peel it, cook it, or eat it. that's a good way to live by. there are other things we can eat. >> who's at most at risk at this point? >> we're seeing pediatric patients, kids, and a lot of young adults, particularly young women. we're caring for about 105 patients. we have the complication of normal infection which is called hu syndrome. these get very sick, about 30% of them taking care of the intensive care units. some of these patients are intubated because of the neurologic symptoms. the focus on young women. five, in fact, are pregnant,
5:54 am
which is something we haven't seen before. and obviously, this is something that has to do with the particular makeup of this particular strain. >> thank you very much for your time. ratko mladic, the former commander of the bosnian serb army told the war crimes tribunal the charges against him were obnoxious. that was in the court appearance today. nick robinson was in the court. he joins us from the hague. describe to us what you saw while you were in there. nick, can you hear me? >> what we saw in the court today was that ratko mladic at his former self, if you will, say that he was defending the nation, defending the country.
5:55 am
that was his justification. he showed absolutely no remorse. it is clear looking at the man that he's not as physically strong as he was. he lost his big barrel chest and lost a lot of weight. you can see he can't use his right arm properly. the fingers on his right hand sort of slightly contorted. but the glaring in his eyes, his eyes were as strong as ever, glaring at the court, glaring at the judge. and at times glaring at the public gallery where some of the victims or family members of victims from srebrenica were sitting. he was glaring at them, leering at them, and he was waving at some point at an incredibly contemptuous way given the charges being leveled against him. he denied those charges calling them mon trostrous words. saying the charges were
5:56 am
outrageous. the contempt he showed in the courtroom was staggering. and that was every inch the bombastic, combatic mladic. he says he wants more than 30 days before he answers it charges against him. he didn't want the charges read out in court. he did get 22 minutes' private time discussing his medical issues with the judge in the courtroom and the gallery, we couldn't hear what was being discussed. i was sitting behind the family members from srebrenica, some of the women who lost loved ones, a lady lost her son. she told me it was like being back in srebrenica in 1995 to see him. she'd asked him to save her 18-year-old son. he hasn't. never seen her son or found his body. there were strong emotions and mladic was returning it in kind there, juanita? >> he hasn't entered a plea. we understand that the court is adjourned for now. what happens next?
5:57 am
>> ha happens next is he has 30 days to enter that plea. the court called for the court to reconvene on the 14th of july at 10:00 a.m. he wants a team of lawyers. he didn't seem satisfied with the court-appointed lawyer, although he was serbian. he will choose lawyers. he wants more time because he's old and infirmed. >> you're watching "world one" live from london. the news continues here on cnn. there's another way to help eliminate litter box dust: purina tidy cats. our premium litters now work harder to help neutralize odors in multiple cat homes. purina tidy cats. keep your home smelling like home. fore! no matter what small business you are in,
